    3. Chad
    2. Fifita
    1. Gal or Lewis before going off

    First half was excellent. Completions and defensive aggression.
    Maybe should have more points but took the opportunities that were there.

    Second half not so good.
    Out enthused and slow in attack. Penrith were off the line in defence and really pressuring us. We should have known that this would
    Have happened and should have gone through the middle in numbers with short passing.
    Defensively we dropped off a little in intensity and contact. We didn’t match the changes from Penrith.

    Held and tougher it out after loosing 600 games of experience for the last 10 or so.

    Chad was in everything. Enthusiastic and always around the ball. Fifita was good. Priors first stint was excellent.

    Holmes needed more clean ball and we were a little too lateral going left. The kick mistake was ameturish and can’t ever happen again. A little more body on the line for Kikau but who the f**k stands in his way.
    Prior and bakuya were the main culprits there. It should never had made it to Holmes.

    Seggy added little. The crispness in passing was obvious from brailey.

    Flanno played Maloney like a violin. Well done indeed.

    Forgot Moylan. His defence was tough. He was targeted and really showed some nuts. First half playing on the front foot his attack was good too.

    Agree. Fifita was superb. Chad started the scoring and iced the game. Capewell stood up. Big minutes and was gone in that second half but got the job done.

    You gave Chad 3 points yet you say" 2nd half not so good , slow in attack"
    You are correct in saying that but who is in charge or the playmaker for theirattack?
    You also say,Holmes needed more clean ball, which is also correct.
    On 2 occasions in the first half Feki had to run in field because the panthers defence pushed across because the ball came out to slow. Now go watch the replay and which player holds the ball does a dummy, a little shuffle then passes the ball?
    It's the player you gave your 3 points to causing all of these issues

    In this day & age to come out & nominate the tactics was a master stroke.

    It really put pressure on Maloney even though he wouldn’t admit it.

    His game reflected that.

    Well he was not playing yawnion where his job would be to just get the ball and throw it asap to whosoever was meant to be there no matter what. He is a rugby league half ,meant to direct the play to wherever the situation is best suited. Doesnt always play out correct but I know which way takes a smarter player.

    3 Chad - don't know what's clicked, but it has
    2 MoyMoy - Best game for us by a mile, dominated the first half
    1 The Box - Almost as good as the 2016 Raiders semi

    Thought that second half was shocking. Penrith came out and played much better but we kept putting pressure on Maloney which put him off his game. How Cleary missed that field goal right in front I’ll never know. Even Chad buried his chance which wasn’t half as easy as his. We can definitely beat Melbourne next week if we pull our fingers out and not go to sleep in the second half. Needed to keep the foot on their throat tonight but we took it off and they very nearly made us pay.

    Not to worry. Onwards and upwards. Melbourne next week, let’s beat those dirty f**kers and set sail for the GF.

    Thought Lewis and Fifita were on fire when ever they were on. Chad, Moyza, Holmes and feki really played off them to get us the lead. Give us more of that.

    Moylan

    Moylan looked very motivated and did a gazzillion 1per centers
    But it should not be merely playing your old club to be motivated
